D.I.Y. Program - For Teens

Do it Yourself Box

Every day in October!

Locate the D.I.Y box located in the YA (young adult) section of the library. Each month the D.I.Y. box will contain supplies, suggestions, and examples of a craft project that you can come to library and create any time during the month of October. Once you have completed the craft, you are welcome to take your creation home with you. Bring a friend and make an afternoon of it. Don’t forget to sign the log so that we know that you enjoyed the program.

Chosen by the ALA (American Library Association) as a 2009 YALSA (Young Adult Library Association) Awards winner in the category of “Fabulous Films for Young Adults", Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis is a 2007 French animated film based on the popular autobiographical graphic novel of the same name. The story follows a young girl as she comes of age against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution. The graphic novel itself was included in YALSA's "Ultimate YA Bookshelf" list identifying it as a must-have material for teens, and the book and film have both won countless other awards! This showing will present the English language version of the film. Free popcorn will be provided to all who attend! Teens 13 to 18 years of age must bring a signed permission slip to attend. Permission slips can be obtained at the library front desk. Parents may also choose to preview this movie by checking it out from the library in advance of September 26th to determine if this film is appropriate for their teens.
